1994-10-25 Alfred Kotey w pts 12 Armando Castro, Town Hall, Middlesbrough, England - WBO. Referee: Bill Connors. Scorecards: 120-108, 120-108, 119-111. Try as he might, Kotey (117½) could not put the tough Castro (117¾) down, ultimately having to rely on the judges who could do no more than give him the near shut-out win he deserved. Showing off his range of punches in short bursts, Kotey was far superior to the plodding challenger who finished with a badly swollen face, and had he extended himself he would surely have won inside the distance.
